Indiana Pacers Might Trade Artest After Holidays

Marc J. Spears of THE DENVER POST reports, “Indiana forward Ron Artest’s agent expects his client to spend this holiday season in a Pacers uniform.

The Pacers still plan to trade Artest, who recently requested to be dealt and then changed his mind.

The Nuggets have acknowledged talking to Indiana about Artest and are rumored to be dangling forward-center Nene and guard Earl Watson in exchange for Artest and guard Anthony Johnson.

Artest’s agent, Mark Stevens, said Wednesday he is talking to Pacers president Donnie Walsh regularly and expects a trade after the holidays.”
